Have you ever had garlic bacon bread knots before? This is a bit like the bread rolls except without the bread. It’s just pure bacon bliss.

To prevent the knots from getting too small while cooking, I actually did two knots per strip and kept the knots slightly loose. As a result, the knots didn’t shrink too much, making for a nice presentation.

Most of my friends are bacon-lovers so I am excited to have this easy appetizer to make next time I have a house party.

Garlic Parmesan Bacon Knots

Garlic Parmesan Bacon Knots are a fun and easy recipe. Bacon is knotted and cooked in the oven with garlic and Parmesan cheese.


  • 16 strips raw bacon
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp finely chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with foil and then parchment paper.
  2. Slightly stretch out one slice of bacon and tie into a loose knot. Then tie another knot on top. This double knot should prevent your bacon knots from shrinking too much. Place onto baking sheet and repeat with remaining bacon, spacing about 1/2 inch apart.
  3. Evenly sprinkle bacon knots with between 1/16- 1/8 tsp minced garlic. Place baking sheet into the oven and cook 10-15 minutes until bacon is cooked.
  4. Sprinkle bacon evenly with cheese and then parsley. Place back into oven and cook an additional 5-10 minutes until bacon has reached your desired consistency.

  1. what a great idea!  looks fab. 

  2. These look so delicious. I was thinking about slightly steaming asparagus and knot the bacon around that. Not sure if the asparagus needs to be cooked a little first or not? Any ideas anyone? We like our bacon crisp but not hard.

    • Hmm, I think it’ll work but I’m not sure if you’ll need to pre-cook the asparagus. I think for extra thick stalks you’ll need to steam a little first, but for regular or slim stalks, they’ll be tender by the time the bacon is done.
